Dartmoor found a new wave of international fame in 2012 when it was used as the backdrop to the Hollywood adaptation of the novel, and the locations make for some lovely walks.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\u003cp\u003eSpielberg was so in awe of Dartmoor\u0026rsquo;s natural beauty that he\u0026rsquo;s described it as a character in the film, and he revised the film to include more shots in the area than he had originally planned. Locations used include the area surrounding the enchanting Widecombe-in-the-Moor, Haytor, Sheepstor, the little known village of Meavy and many more. The great news is that hikers have their pick of the areas that shimmered on the silver screen, and they\u0026rsquo;re as unspoilt as they were for the centuries before Hollywood discovered them.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\u003cp\u003eThe village of Widecombe-in-the-Moor is a small village right in the heart of the national park, and it not only makes a picturesque base for a hearty Devon hike but it\u0026rsquo;s also an interesting place to spend some time. The village is best-known for its mention in the folksong Widecombe Fair, and the event still runs each year \u0026ndash; so the local shops are well-stocked with souvenirs depicting the rhyme\u0026rsquo;s characters and references to the historic fair.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n\u003cp\u003eHaytor will be a familiar name to any avid hikers, and it remains one of Devon\u0026rsquo;s most popular spots with walkers and visitors to Dartmoor.\u003c/p\u003e\r\n","AtGlance":null,"Categories":[{"ParentId":null,"Id":375,"Name":"Things To Do"},{"ParentId":"375","Id":329,"Name":"Walks"},{"ParentId":"329","Id":335,"Name":"Hiking"}],"Inspirations":[{"Id":0,"Name":null,"Description":null},{"Id":0,"Name":null,"Description":null},{"Id":0,"Name":null,"Description":null}],"HotPick":true,"LocationLatitude":50.575,"LocationLongitude":-3.8122,"MainImage":"https://assets.bluechipholidays.co.uk/media/catalogs/public/downloads/preview/custom_carousel/2013/05/1368181500.jpg/carousel.jpg","LogoImage":null,"Alias":"devon/dartmoor-country/war-horse-locations","MainImageSmall":"https://assets.bluechipholidays.co.uk/media/catalogs/public/downloads/preview/custom_1x1/2013/05/1368181500.jpg/carousel.jpg","Locations":[{"ParentId":"76","Id":237,"Name":"Dartmoor \u0026 Country","Alias":"dartmoor-country"},{"ParentId":"201","Id":76,"Name":"South Devon","Alias":"south-devon"},{"ParentId":null,"Id":201,"Name":"Devon","Alias":"devon"}]},"Distance":null},"IsDestinationPage":false}
